The media has been having a field day with the story of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by St. Louis police. As the black community protests his death with violent riots and unlawful looting, civil rights activists from around the country have come forward because they will not stand for a black man dying at the hands of a white cop. But what if the tables were turned? Would Al Sharpton care if Michael Brown had been white? The answer, of course, is no.
While the death of Michael Brown was tragic, perhaps the greatest injustice of all is the fact that if he were white, nobody would care about his story. Case in point: you probably have no recollection of an incident which occurred in Ferguson, Missouri – the location of the Michael Brown shooting – in which a white man was assaulted with a hammer by four black men. You probably don’t remember this brutal hate crime because it never made national headlines, despite being a worthy story. Unfortunately, when a white person is attacked by blacks, it doesn’t fit the Left’s racist agenda, therefore, it gets ignored.
On August 24, 2013, a white hot dog vendor was attacked with a hammer by four black men outside of the Ferguson Home Depot store. The black individuals had stolen the hammer from inside of the store. When they exited the facility, they swiped the white man’s cell phone. He attempted to chase after them, at which point they hit him in the head with the hammer several times and fled to their car, then drove away. The bloodied victim was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
Tell us what you think of the media’s biased repotting of racial hate crimes in the comments section, but know that if you do, you will probably be labeled a racist.
